‘In Other Words.
Whatever we describe, it cannot be the subject self, for as soon as we describe it, we externalise it and make it part of ‘our’ world, standing over there against us. The self cannot describe itself, unless it tries to make itself an object. And if it tries to do that, it loses the very essence of it’s selfhood. ‘
